Score of 81 seems high for the number and type of "cons."

Hi Barnaby,
As a fellow Seattleite, I must know from where you shot the night view of downtown. Thanks.

On article Fujifilm X100S Review (492 comments in total)

Just some editing quibbles: I see several instances of the mistaken mention of the "S" model when you meant the non S model. FYI.

Do the dpreview editors actually read these blog posts before publicizing on this site? Duong's writing is terrible. Choosing quality material is what an editor is supposed to do.

It's nice to have your images for sale on Getty but the payoff is more bragging rights than monetary. I have about 240 images avaiable for licensing on Getty via flickr; perhaps 10-20 have actually had customers. Getty is setting mostly royalty-free pricing, so after the photographer's take of 20 percent or so, there isn't a lot left. The larger the image library gets, the more competition increases for customers on a given type of image.

Is there lens correction support for Panasonic and Olympus MFT lenses yet?

Almost wish this had come out before I bought my D800.

I am disappointed that Canon chose not to enter the "enthusiast" end of the mirrorless market with a competitor to the Fuji X1 Pro and Sony NEX 7. With the EOS M, Canon has only reinforced the positions of the Panasonic and Olympus m4/3 as the serious photographer's mirrorless cameras of choice. Such a shame.

Does he make these for other cameras? It's a great idea if a wireless remote is not available. Old school.

Geez, what do you people want? How about appraising the high-ISO images? They look pretty good to me.

Never thought I would see Canon's pricing higher than Nikon's in the same camera class. This is concerning.
